Chengdu Holidays

Known as the home of the giant panda and China’s most laidback and charming city, Chengdu as capital of Sichuan province is the gateway to China’s west. Made rich from the production of silk brocade that was exported as far as Rome, and then as a printing centre where the world’s first paper money was produced, Chengdu has always been a prosperous place. Today, a thoroughly modern city and a centre for business, industry and education, Chengdu has kept its cheerful and mellow atmosphere thanks to its plentiful parks and laidback, teahouse culture.

There are many reasons to visit Chengdu, the sights of Sichuan province are many of them, but the big ones are the iconic giant panda and food. The famous Chengdu Panda Base provides the perfect opportunity to observe these adorable bears eating, playing and relaxing in surroundings that are very similar to their natural habitat in the bamboo forests of Sichuan. To the people of Sichuan as a whole, food is one of life’s most important things – that’s why Chengdu has one of the highest densities of restaurants in the world, and was designated a UNESCO city of gastronomy, Asia’s first, in 2010. From street snacks to hot pots, the fiery flavours of Chengdu’s food are unsurpassed.

Five Reasons To Visit Chengdu

Giant Pandas
Chengdu’s Giant Panda Base is home to a whole embarrassment (yes, that is the collective noun!) of pandas, both adults and cubs alike – you can spend time watching their antics and visit the informative museum.  

Grand Buddha of Leshan
Sitting serenely on the confluence of three rivers about two hours from Chengdu, the Grand Buddha towers to 71 metres, making him the world’s largest Buddhist sculpture.

In the Huanglong Valley, a series of richly-coloured mineral formed pools tumble down through a landscape of lush forest and mountain peaks.

Mt Emei
One of China’s four sacred Buddhist Mountains, Mt Emei is said to be the site of the country’s first Buddhist temple. Covered in diverse forest and dotted with old temples, the mountain is a delight to explore.

Nine Villages Valley
The Nine Villages Valley, or Jiuzhaigou, is a UNESCO-listed national park, full of spectacular nature. Walk amongst vivid-blue lakes, thick forest and rushing waterfalls.
